Violets Blues Productions presents,

The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band

April 28 at 8pm, doors open at 7pm.  Lic. cash bar

Southern Indiana-bred singer-guitarist Reverend Peyton is the bigger-than-life frontman of Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band. He has earned a reputation as both a singularly compelling performer and a persuasive evangelist for the rootsy country blues styles that captured his imagination early in life and inspired him and his band to make pilgrimages to Clarksdale, Mississippi to study under such blues masters as T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and David “Honeyboy” Edwards.

Carlos del Junco and the Blues Mongrels

Saturday May 5 at 8pm, (doors at 7:30)  Lic. cash bar
Tickets $35 (incl. HST) available at Simcoe Street Books and

Carlos returns to the SST with his new 2018 CD “Hang On”
Simultaneously sophisticated and raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz (hence the name for his band “The Blues Mongrels”). The emphasis is on blues, but Carlos and his band are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, swing, Latin, hip-hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock.


Violets Blues Productions presents,

Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater

Saturday, May 12, 2018 8pm, doors at 7pm
Tickets $50 available at Violets Blues Productions

During the 1950s, Chicago’s West Side was a breeding ground for some of the world’s greatest bluesmen. Magic Sam, Otis Rush, Freddie King and others ruled the clubs. With his fierce guitar playing, soulful and emotive vocals and wild stage shows, Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater easily belongs on this list. A Chicago legend, Clearwater is an intense, flamboyant blues-rocking showman. He’s equally comfortable playing the deepest, most heartfelt blues or rocking, good-time party music. DownBeat said, “Left-hander Eddy Clearwater is a forceful six-stringer…He lays down some gritty West Side shuffles and belly-grinding slow blues that highlight his raw chops, soulful vocals, and earthy, humorous lyrics.”

The Elephant Girls

by Margo MacDonald

Saturday June 2, 8 pm (doors open at 7:30 pm)
Tickets $28 (incl. HST) available at Simcoe Street Books and

Clever, organized, devious & daring; they stole from the rich and gave to themselves. This is the
gripping story of the all-female gang which terrorized London for over 100 years. A fascinating
piece of lost women’s history, the play focuses on the 1920s when the gang was at the height of
its power—and when the events took place which would come to mean its downfall.

**** “As soon as the lights come up, Margo MacDonald captivates, knowing how to keep an
audience in the palm of her hand…astonishing.”
—Ashleigh More, Broadway Baby
**** “…the attention of the audience never strays and remains ensnared in a captivating story.
The play is brilliantly written and exceptionally performed…you will be left wanting to know
more. Highly recommended.”
—Fringe Guru
